people were hurt yesterday. russia's president vladimir putin is blaming the surge in violence on ukraine and the west as well. it's putting new pressure on the white house to find a way to force russia to withdraw. nbc's kristen welker is live for us at the white house with more this afternoon. kristen, first of all, what are president obama's options here? >> well, he doesn't have a whole lot of options, craig. the president has been quite clear that a military option is off the table. so right now the u.s. and its european partners are focusing on sanctions. they have so far implemented several rounds of sanctions, which have largely been targeted at individuals. on friday, president obama met with german chancellor angela merkel here at the white house, and the two made a pretty big announcement, which is that they had agreed to move forward with sectorial sanctions, if the crisis in ukraine worsens after the may 25th election. so i don't anticipate that we'll see any new sanctions prior to that. then a final decision will be based on what is actually happening in ukraine. this is sig

.s. and its european allies has really become a conflict with russia is resonating in several directions. some of that was on display today at the white house. where president obama and german chancellor angela merkel endeavored to present a united front, punishment if russia does not disengage. >> if it continues to destabilize, eastern ukraine and disrupt this month's presidential election we will move quickly on additional steps. including further sanctions that will impose greater cost but that's a choice facing the russian leadership. gwen: some of the fallout is affecting how americans view their second term president. in the latest "wall street journal"/nbc news poll, nearly half of those surveyed say that the u.s. should be less active in world affairs. and approval of the president's handling of foreign policy has dropped to its lowest point ever. so what did the white house do this week to speak to that? alexis? >> so the president and the administration started the week by talking about another round of tough sanctions. most of the sanctions that started the week that the administra

"the wall street journal" the president meets with angela merkel. german companies opposing sanctions, can you explain. guest: german companies opposed sanctions against iran, it is no surprise they are opposing sanctions against russia. the german corporate lobby is very strong. it is no surprise. it is a very strong economic relationship between germany and russia. including former german chancellor, who is making a lot of money helping natural gas flow from russia to germany. no surprise. angela merkel is under pressure. host: one of the fundamental flaws of sa

-- that russia has taken kiev for sea power - natural resources of the sea. as an american, what are we lacking in terms of natural resources? guest: i don't understand the premise of the question. as far as natural resources, the united states is not lacking anything. we have the potential to almost be self-sufficient in resources. the economy is growing today primarily because of energy development on state and private lands. if we were to actually use energy resources on public lands, we could sustain that growth and not have a roller coaster of boom and bust. we have the resources in the united states. areust need to make sure we developing those resources in every form, not just carbon-based fuels. host: here are a couple of tweets -- guest: amen. and there are some perfect examples. we have an area outside of utah which was blm land that they did easter break,one and almost broke into her right down a. finally, they contracted with the county to manage that area in the county now manages it and maximize profit and is one of the premier recreation areas we have in the state of utah if not

dollar. >>> how the sanctions on russia could end up hurting america's own space program, and the fight to give millions of americans a rise. that's "real money." >> space may be the final frontier, but it also may be the conflict between united states and russia. look at the response to the latest u.s. sanctions in the crisis of ukraine. ouch. here's the thing. right now the only way for nasa to get to the international space station is on a russian spacecraft. some worry that russia will deny access on the spacecraft and worse, not bring back the american astronauts already on board. you have a lot of families and friends in this industry. do you believe it's a real possibility the russians would say we're not going to transport your astronauts any more. >> i think charlie bolden said it directly. the space relationship between the united states and russia has survived a lot of other political up heavals, statistically the answer is no, they wouldn't do that, but russia has surprised us a lot, especially here in the last couple of months. i think it is a very real possibility, but but
of the middle east. as china, russia, iran, and north korea push for more advanced launch vehicles, the construction of an east coast site will dramatically improve the ability of our military to intercepted incoming threats by increasing the ability to engage and defeat those threats. with the 2009 cancellation of the missile defense site in poland, coupled with an increased threat environment, it's imperative that we continue to act to protect the homeland from the long range ballistic missile threat. i thank you for your consideration to this amendment. i want to again thank chairman culberson for his commitment. i yield back. the chair: the gentleman yields back. the gentleman from texas, for what purpose. mr. culberson: move to strike the last word. the chair: is recognized for five minutes. mr. culberson: i rise in strong support of this amendment and i thank my colleague from georgia and working with us on making sure we get this done. we are long overdue for any ballistic missile site on the continental united states here on the east coast in particular. my good friend from

piece of this legislation is intended to deter russia from what it's doing. mr. president, if you remember the geneva accord said that putin would move the russia troops away from the border that are intimidating people inside eastern ukraine. but i think what we've seen now is that -- quote -- "red line" has changed and now what the administration is focused on is them not actually going inside the country. but all of us understand that russia is actually accomplishing what it wishes to accomplish inside ukraine without even sending troops in, because they're able to do it, again with black ops. so what this piece of legislation that i'm -- that my friend from wyoming and so many others were involved in developing what this legislation does is lay down clear sanctions, first beginning today -- or after passage beginning with sanctions sanctions that hit several important entities in the banking sector and the energy sector so that we actually do something that affects the russian economy until such a time as they pull those troopsway from the border and they remove -- those troop
are standing, are sanctions impacting russia or its supporters in eastern ukraine? >> that's a very difficult question to ask. you'd have to say the ultimate intention of these sanctions is to prevent a russian invasion of eastern ukraine and if that invasion does not happen, was it due to the sanctioners not. i suspect we might be arguing about that for months or years to come, but as rewards the conduct of pro russian groups in the east, they don't seem deterred at all, quite the contrary. they seem more emboldened on each day, going very much on the offensive, they are on the front, sanctions or not. >> barnaby phillips for us in donetsk in eastern you a crane, thank you. >> parliamentary elections, first time they have headed to the polls since the u.s. pulled out in 2011. there are reports of attacks outside the capitol. we are at a polling side in baghdad. how has the turnout been so far where you are? >> this polling station in central baghdad, they are voting just through those doors, has about 3,500 registered voters, about 1,000 people have turned up so far. now what an independent

. and pro-russia activists are tightening *their grip on eastern cities. hundreds stormed buildings across luhansk today, a province that borders russia. barnaby phillips is in eastern ukraine with this report. >> the pro-russian crowd swept into the government building in luhansk unopposed- and despite widespread rumours that this takeover was imminent- the police did nothing- they seem unwilling to take on the crowds, and they were escorted away. so pro russian groups continue to extend their control in eastern ukraine. they want to hold them in early may, but in order for that vote to be credible, they need to have a large number area of authority. and that's what's driving them on. but how fair would such a vote be? roman lazorenko runs a news website in donetsk- we're going to his office - he's taken down the name plaque- and most of his staff are too afraid to come here- after a visit by a group of masked men who said he should report more favourably on the self-declared 'people's republic of donetsk' >> if the influence of the people's republic of donetsk grows, then it will be diff
security person is here. >> a few hours ago. the security council met to discuss militants. >> russia nairing back with penalties. russian president vladimir putin warned russia may block western participation in the multi billion dollar energy center. the war of words matched more and more by violence on the ground. this, say u.s. officials is not what deescalation looks like. ups of pro russian protesters, seizing yet another ukrainian government building in the east. local riot police tried and failed to diffuse the standoff. u.s. officials say every day there is growing evidence that russia is orchestrating the unrest even as russian officials repeatedly deny it. >> they somehow want to assert that these people moving in disciplined military formation to take over buildings and then bring the local separatists in to occupy the building while they move on to another building. they assert that these people are merely local activists. as we have made clear, those kinds of claims are absurd. they defy any common sense. >> with moscow continuing to brush off american and european econo
if the europeans had another option rather than depending on russia for its energy, that would be a very big reason-but nevertheless they're saying this isn't about jobs. this is about oil companies getting richer. you say what? >> the state department says there will be 20,000 direct jobs created by this. these are working-class jobs, people with better wages and better benefits, whose children will go to better school and whose future for the family will be brighter for darryl hannah to minimize the impact on those families to show incredible sensitivity to a group of americans having a very hard time now. she can fuss with the state department. it's the state department says this is about at least 20,000 direct jobs. >> congressman, good seeing you again. senator landrieu, if you're watching, you're always invited to come on. >>> severe storms moving across the south at this hour. forcing thousands of evacuations. are we looking at the same today? we are on it, all over it. >> go! now. >> what? >> now! we need it right away! we cannot let the fans down. don't worry! the united states postal serv
in america are starting? the role for congress to turn the back for america. incursion,r russia's in nation, depending on who you ask, they tried to guarantee more loans to the country. there were some people who said that this is not a good idea, we are not going to get this money back, and tried to tap into that populist frustration across the country. rand paul is one of those people. he is positioning himself as the menu doesn't want to give american money away abroad. that it makes you an isolationist amanda does put him out of the mainstream of what the parties doing. guest: it's an interesting point that the caller raises. both congress and the white house avenue 2 jobs in terms of domestic policy and foreign policy, and the white house would certainly argue that it is very important that ukraine feel the support of the united states both in terms of the loan guarantee but also just support dealinge of the u.s. with the challenges that russia is creating. the questions about if congress to move quickly on that but not on employment insurance or these other issues are fair questions.
about the problem with the communist nation of russia which has illegally seized crimea and is now making incursions into the eastern area of ukraine? i just returned from a trip, mr. speaker, on sunday, visiting some former soviet block nations, to talk about their response to the aggressive, illegal actions of russia and what's happening, to reset the table in the former soviet block nations. these are nations that are very worried about what they're seeing. they're worried because they understand that you can trust a communist to be a communist and their actions today are a mere image of what their action were formerly. russia recognizes if no one pushes back, they will continue to salivate over more lands and more influence and seek to dominate more people. russia's responsible for enslaving millions of people. in fact, they even murdered tens of millions of their own people under stalin. this is the regime that needs to be washed. and unfortunately under our previous secretary of state, hillary clinton, she gave, in my opinion unwisely, the reset button to the former soviet --
round of sanctions on russia following its annexation of crimea in february. seven government officials all russian officials and 17 different companies, all have close links with vladimir putin. the united states also said in the list that it was published a few hours ago, that it would deny export licenses to any high tech equipment that it feels may be of significance and used to the russian military effort. there has been a response from russia, let me give you that. the foreign -- deputy foreign minister said the u.s. essential would not go unanswered and the response it says will be painful to washington. the eu in separate moves on monday basically said it will be releasing the names of 15 people it will be placing sanctions on freezing assets and travel bans. concerted and linked effort by america and europe to bring up the sanctions. massively tightened up if russia goes into military incursions into ukraine. >>> continue to stand guard in a building in ukraine. some held by surnts i insurgentn ukraine. >> this time their target was the local council building in the town of con
time it will change russia's calculous, and they'll realize that this is a dead-end. you're right. this is a criticism that the sanctions don't go far enough. they have been pushing for broader deeper sanctions. now the white house has talked about what has already happened as a result of the individuals who have already been sanctions. there are several more individuals in in round of sanctions along with the 17 entities that you mentioned. but those entities are those who have been sanctions before. the gradual spreading out, cronies of vladimir putin, cronies and olagarts in the russian economy. it has already cost the russian economy $60 million in investment flight, the credit has been downgraded. and gdp has been downgraded. what has already been done has had some bite and adding to it this evening. >> the president is trying to build that united front when it comes to rolling out the sanctions. as we've been reporting, europe has deeper economic ties with russia than the u.s. are they willing now to be part of the united? >> well, this has been the problem all along, del, e
